Dual-Boot with W2k?

Hi, alright i am a newbie when it comes to linux. I just installed ubuntu on my back up machine prior to using it mainstream. I am a student at CCNA and A+ programs with an IC3 cert. So i know my way around windows. What i would like to know is how to do a dual boot with Ubuntu and Windows 2000 on my machine with two hard-drives. Is there any specific way of doing it? I just need windows to access my training software and certain games, so its not that demanding on the windows side. I appreciate any help you guys could give me, thanks.

The Ubuntu installation program should do it will install grub to the MBR of the first harddrive and Ubuntu to the second (unless you choose differently).
